I have very exciting news for you as football season gets underway. If you did not know many of you qualify for FREE ESPN3 access based on who your internet provider is . This is online live footage of tons of games (all different sports) 24 hours a day. They have had this for a while now, but to our excitement they just announced yesterday that Time Warner customers will now be given access!! I checked and they aren’t listed yet but soon!!!
Many of you already have free access all over the country. Go here and click on Watch Now. Then look for your internet provider in the drop down list.
Now go and make your husband a sweet card that you were thinking about his sacrifices for the family in a rough economy and you thought you would give him ESPN.
A Personal Note:
There are many things in life that aren’t truly “necessary”. Cable is one of those. I know some of you balk at the idea, but in all honestly it doesn’t clothe you, feed you or keep you safe while you sleep. When my husband and I got married we decided while we were both working, we would live off one paycheck and save the other one. This meant no unnecessary purchases or bills.
There were 3 bills we chose to never have: Cable, Trash, and Home phone (we use cell phones instead). Together all 3 save us about $1200 a year. Yes it might seem annoying to load up your trash to go to the dump or just watch broadcast TV but after a while you won’t really care anymore.
